Washington DC Gets The High

As the year drew to a close, President Obama signed into law a spending bill that among its 5000 earmarks allows the distribution of medical marijuana in Washington DC. Washington residents voted in such a law way back in 1998 with a 69 percent majority, but Congress blocked it then.

Medical marijuana is now legal in 14 states. It restores appetites for people undergoing chemotherapy. It alleviates pain. It unwinds depression. More recently there are indications that it may even cure or inhibit cancers.

But the latest good news about marijuana is that it appears to be anti-aging. It supports the body's own endo-cannabinoid system, which manages inflammation. Unmoderated inflammation destroys cells. That's aging.

Marijuana also appears to help the body make new cells faster. That feeling of youth you got from a toke way back when may have had something real to it.

'Helps chemotherapy patients survive...' - - 'Eh?'

'May cure cancer...' - - 'Oh really?'

'Eliminates wrinkles... - - - 'OhMyG!!! Where can I get some?'

Washington needs you, oh marijuana. They are all very wrinkled. Almost all of them.

And many are depressed and angry from suffering loss. Marijuana helps a person get beyond loss, too. End their depression. Forget their anger. Play a bigger game.
